Take a Look at the Incomparable McIntosh MC901
Some high-fidelity speakers require massive power to sound their best. Sometimes, even veteran audio enthusiasts have a speaker that they're not satisfied with that may just need more energy. For example, electrostatic speakers from MartinLogan require a lot of juice to bring out the airy and deep soundstage for which the brand and the technology are known. But without the right amplification, you might be unimpressed.
The other aspect of wringing the best sound from a great speaker is matching the amplifier to the speaker. There are several types of amplifier designs and topologies. Two classic types are vacuum tubes, which date back to the dawn of electronics, and solid state, which is the most common type found in most audio products.
There’s much more to this, but we’re trying to keep it simple here. And if you already know all that, you’ll still want to keep reading about the McIntosh MC901 amplifier, which combines both vacuum tubes and solid-state components into a beastly high-end audio amp with the power to drive just about any speaker in your Brookhaven, GA, listening room.

High-End Audio Performance That Won’t Break the Bank
Rotel has always been a company that has flown a bit under the radar. Audio enthusiasts worldwide know of its excellent products, yet many others who delve in audio sometimes overlook this hi-fi company.
The name Rotel would not give away that this is a Japanese company, still family-run. The company got its origins in 1961 and has since acquired a reputation as a high-quality audio electronics maker with classic design and robust build quality. For many years, it was part of the Bowers & Wilkins group and was sold almost exclusively by B&W dealers like GHT Group. Today the company is independent again, not straying far from its mission to build beautiful, long-lasting AV electronic components.
One of those components is the RA-1592 integrated amplifier. Integrated amps are an excellent way to get into high-end audio for your Marietta, GA listening room without complexity but sacrificing nothing in performance. If you love music, the Rotel 1592 makes the perfect complement to drive hi-fi speakers available from GHT Group such as MartinLogan, B&W, Paradigm, Monitor Audio, and Klipsch Heritage.
Keep reading to see why the Rotel 1592 makes an excellent centerpiece for your two-channel audio setup.
